We are going with the 90nm HPs for production.  They "feel" like
beefier boxes than the Suns, but the Suns cost a LOT less, IIRC. 
We're only using the internal drives for the OS.  PG gets access to a
fibre-channel array, HP StorageWorks 3000.  I _can't wait_ to get this

Our dev box is a 130nm DL585 with 16G of RAM and an HP SCSI array, and
I have absolutely zero complaints.  :)
